Forum: audio Subject: Using XSPF mp3 player

Greetings--

Anyone know how to use and configure the free XSPF player found @ sourceforge.net? (Easy to find with google)

I'm able to get it to work just fine if I tell the player to look locally on my PC for the files, but when I tell it to yank my mp3s off of archive.org, it complains.

Really frustrating, since it should work. All the syntax is correct, as far as I can tell. It just doesn't want to pull off of archive.org for some reason.

Any and all help would be really appreciated. I'm so close to figuring this out that I can taste it.

Thanks!

it works ok for me. location data looks like this:

<location>http://www.archive.org/download/ITEM_NAME/FILE_NAME<;/location>

can you give a link to your playlist file or the page with embedded player?

I've included the playlist file (playlist.xspf) as an attachment to this post. The song that plays locally off my PC works fine, but the one streaming off archive.org fails. As what I'm sure is a related matter, a complaint pops up for the first song too, since it references a jpeg hosted on my website.

It would seem that it's some sort of browser security thing, but I've tried to toggle the settings it's complaining about to no avail. Moreover, I wouldn't want users to get this message and be confused. It must be perfectly seamless. I've seen a number of other websites achieve this, so I'm confused why it complains when I try to do for my files.

I've also attached a screenshot of the error message I'm getting (error.bmp).

Currently, I'm running the music player off of a USB thumb drive, and pointing back to the playlist on said thumb drive. After I get this to work (IF I ever do...), I'm going to include a page on my website with code similar to the other file attached to this post (XSPF music player).

PS--
If you were able to get your XSPF player to stream off archive.org, can I see it? That is, will you please post a link to the page it's embedded in?

Thanks!

this error is normal when your play files from internet with XSPF player that is situated somewhere on your PC. as i remember, this is not a browser's security setting, but flash player's. when both of your XSPF swf and playlist files are working from server/website, there will be no error message.

players that are successfully streaming from archive are here: http://ku100ta.narod.ru/tapes.html

Excellent, it seems to be working now.

Much grattitude, Kustota. :)
